    It is hidden away, upstairs + dimly lit!!! Sticking to the name, it's generally quiet and peaceful... food is spectacular and cocktails were amazing, bartender helped curate non-menu drinks!!

    Is it me or is this place a bit of a hidden treasure? John Leguizamo seems to think so!

    Go for the atmosphere and innovative cocktails only. Lobster rolls and hanger steak was overpriced for the mediocrity. I don't recommend food except for the french fries, which were worth every penny!

    Cozy speakeasy, good to chill with friend with a good cocktail. This drink is Dr. who, bourbon with egg white.

    I only got drinks. Based on the reviews I was expecting tasty, multi dimensional cocktails but instead I found pretentious drinks with very few understandable ingredients.

    A lovely little spot, above Joe's pub. There's always something interesting on the menu.

    Get the farmers cheese and sesame crackers and French fries for bar snacks. The Shrubs are super drinkable but I also really like the drink with the egg white.

    Great place for cocktails. Food was great, and the design of dining in a library is even better.

    Such good drinks. Dandy Riot. Honey Pot. Need to eat here properly. Would skip the apps - truffle fries are decent. The brandies cherries are delicious just by themselves.

    Skip the burger, go for the more special dishes like the cauliflower casoulet or the potato & pumpkin pierogis. That's where they really shine.

    The pickle plate had a surrise in every bite. Each vegetable was pickled in a different brine. It included egg, cauliflower, carrots, beats and many other fresh pickled vegetables.

    Great spot to take a date. Good drinks and upscale bar food. Shrimp tacos are the bomb. Pulled pork sandwich and fries are also great.

    Options include the pickle plate and marinated olives, as well as peekytoe crab rolls, which are more like sliders, and ruby red shrimp tacos. Read more

    New year price fixed meal- same price as a two star Michelin and not as good as a one star. Totally overrated. Regretting my nye meal here

    When you enter the lobby of The Public Theater, hang a left and go up the stairs. At the end of the staircase you'll find this hidden Andrew Carmellini restaurant.
